Man at His Best

Chang Urban Pulse Brings Thailandís Street Culture To Singapore

The only thing missing is the local food. But who cares when thereís beer?

According to a report by the Department of Tourism Thailand in 2016, Singapore-based travellers are amongst the top 10 visitors to the land of a thousand smiles. Judging from our own experiences, it’s their hospitable culture, sumptuous food and shopping that draw mass appeal from their Singapore brethren. Oh, and definitely their fight club, hip-hop and break-dancing battles.

If you haven’t had the chance to experience the latter set of Thailand’s finest, consider this: the whole contingent will be in town to square up against Singapore’s very own representatives. You better represent!—our street vibe enthuses.

The party itinerary is buttered with a spread of adrenalin rush: Muay Thai fighters Kanpetch Pornpichit and Chomyong Kaewwichai will be in the ring with Singaporeans Brandon Ng and Cheryl Gwa.

 

The boys from Radikal Forze.

 

Down on the dancefloor, Bangkok breakdancers from 99Flava will take turns to battle one of the nation’s oldest and most revered crew, Radikal Forze, while beatboxers Dharni Ng and Blish and rappers MasiaOne and TeCH'1 face up under the Singapore and Thailand banner respectively.

All these beats—from DJ Rattle and the night’s host, the Bangkok Invaders DJ collective—and battles while we enjoy Chang Beer? What a treat!

The Chang Urban Pulse takes place on February 24, 9pm till late, at Infinite Studios and is an invite-only party. To stand a chance to get on the list, head to the website and register.
